We help animal shelters & rescues save money with discounts on supplies

“Shelters United saves us $675/month just on preventatives alone!!! With these savings I can hire a part-time employee!”

Our Mission Has Always Been:

to help nonprofit animal shelters
and rescue groups save money

by sourcing manufacturer and distributor discounts on products needed to heal, protect, and adopt out healthy pets.

A program brought to you by

Supporting animal welfare organizations like yours since 1981

Save money with shelter pricing (savings made possible through our MWI distributor partnership)

“Group negotiating” is a proven approach and common practice for small vet clinics. We’re bringing it to nonprofit shelters, rescues, and spay/neuter groups, regardless of size.

Gain access to negotiated discounts, promotions and special offers from our group vendors

Because of our buying power, Shelters United is also able to support our members beyond discount pricing with additional special offers like FREE products from manufacturers.

Join a mission-based community advancing animal welfare


Beyond product discounts, Shelters United is building a library of ideas, tips, and motivation – with contributions from our members, so we can help as many animals as possible can be adopted.

A Message from Our Founder,

Mal Schwartz

In the 42 years that I have been supporting animal welfare, I have never been as excited about a program as I am about Shelters United. Your nonprofit will be part of a unique buying group created by MWI Animal Health and INPEx. As a member of this buying group, your nonprofit will receive significant discounts on many of the supplies you need every day– saving a lot of money for you and more than 900+ rescues, shelters, and S/N organizations nationwide. I look forward to continuing to support you!
